Finally...my first TEE!

Hi all! Sorry I've been away again. Never-ending drama that's taken me away from stampy time. No but seriously...my dad had a little accident and well...all I have to say is THANK GOD he's doing great!

So...moving on! I finally was able to stamp something last night. I was feeling cranky and took a Valium and well...came up with this card! When I first saw Melanie's Little Tee set...all these ideas came rushing thru my head! This one was the very first one I thought of! I love olives and my momma...so what better way to combine both! ;) Plus...I have so much of this DP in my scraps pile that I hadn't used so I knew I had to use it for this card! I love how versatile this set is!!! Hope to make a couple more today! The background was created using the large olive from the Rubbernecker cocktails collection...cool huh! The shadow for the "body" was created by first using my pencil then I colored it in using Warm Grey. I saw that on Melanie's blog and had to do that to give it a realistic look! Ok...now that I have another fun idea in my head...I better go work on it now before I forget! See ya'll later with another Tee card!

Light Olive (olive)
